“If there is one thing that the Indian film industry will never be able to match it is the energy of Dev Anand. When I reached the sets at Gateway of India it was 11 am. Dev sahab was already on the sets and in the midst of a shot. He was directing and acting in Mr. Prime Minister. Till 7 pm he continued working tirelessly amidst crowds of uncontrollable onlookers. It also happened to be his 81st birthday and his friends had thrown a party for him after the shoot.  By 11:20 pm I was exhausted and decided to call it a day. As I was leaving the party Dev sahab was still exuberant even at that hour. He was living up every moment of his birthday. It was hard for me to believe he was almost twice my age.”
